More ways to collect and spend Avios, new partnerships with Aer Lingus and Pasta Evangelists – and the chance to win a trip to Italy

Your Avios, your way
The new
Avios part payment update means you can now save even more by using your Avios to discount every seat on every flight across our network to just £1. It’s just one way we’re hoping to offer you even greater flexibility. 

Simply log into your account, select your flights and use the Avios part payment option at the price page. Savings are subject to change. Different savings are available per route, travel period and number of people in the booking. Plus, with Avios part payment, you’ll still collect Avios and Tier Points when you travel.

Earn Tier Points with Aer Lingus
We have some good news for you. You can now earn Tier Points on flights operated or ticketed by Aer Lingus, our sister carrier as part of IAG. Previously, you would have only earned Tier Points on an Aer Lingus codeshare flight with a BA flight number.

A month-long collaboration with Pasta Evangelists – and two ways to win big
Delivering fresh, artisanal pasta and delicious cook-at-home-kits, the savants at Pasta Evangelists know how to make pasta like a pro – something you can experience first hand at its restaurant inside Harrods and at its hands-on Pasta Academy in Farringdon, London.

Until mid-June, Pasta Evangelists will be offering delivery of four limited edition pasta dishes, inspired by four BA Euroflyer routes to Italy: Bari, Turin, Verona and Catania.

There is also the chance to win a BA Euroflyer holiday to your choice of Bari, Turin, Verona, Catania or Cagliari. To enter, and for full terms and conditions, click here. The winner will be selected at random. Prize draw closes at 23.59 BST on 5 June 2024.

On top of this, you can book a spot at one of four British Airways Pasta Making Series masterclasses at the Pasta Academy, with a chance for one attendee at each class to win a Club Europe trip to Italy. Hosted by head chef Roberta d’Elia, the course celebrates our Italian routes from Gatwick with a regional pasta workshop, unlimited prosecco, the chance to mingle with British Airways ambassadors and, of course, a goodie bag at the end.

As an Executive Club Member, you’ll also get £10 off when you spend £25 on Pasta Evangelists takeaway orders before 31 December 2024 using code BAEXEC. It can be used once per customer.

1. Open to UK residents only [excluding Northern Ireland].
2. Only one entry per person. Winner selected at random. 
3. No cash alternative.
4. Subject to availability.
